The Ragged Cot is a beautiful boutique country inn with a history spanning over three hundred years. From sun-drenched gardens in a picturesque Cotswold setting to roaring log fires creating a cosy atmosphere, the Ragged Cot is the place to be at any time of the year.

Having stood proudly since the 17th Century, the coaching house has an intriguing past filled with highwaymen and pilferage. Recently under new ownership, the Ragged Cot has been lovingly restored to combine authentic countryside tradition with modern style and comfort – with dogs and wellies welcome! The shabby chic interior and deeply comfortable bedrooms are the epitome of countryside cool.

Food cold, wrong order delivered, service good at start of evening but tailed off. Felt that a young apprentice had produced the dinner as the table next to us looked a lot more appealing.

Food was very good. Portion sizes were Good. Service was fantastic. The restaurant is very nice and then moved to the garden, which in the sunset was stunning.
Relaxing, Chilled & Quite.
Highly Recommended.

Not much choice of times when booked on line, but on arrival seating area very quiet?
Great food but thought main course was a little small, Seafood linguine.

The bottomless brunch deal was great value for money, however the staff were slow in topping up drinks and not clear on options when it came to food, I.e what food came with brunch options. Over priced food for what you got, my friend had the chorizo dish it was like lukewarm chunky soup with under toasted bread and no butter. Did ask to change dish, which the staff did do however items were missing from dishes. Overall okay, but wouldn’t rush to do it again.

Despite the rather drizzly weather we were kept warm by lush blankets and eating underneath the canopy really helped. Staff were attentive and the food was great and didn't take long at all to arrive at our table.

Friendly staff. Delicious lunch.
Will definitely return soon.

We asked what the catch of the day was and the waitress didn’t know.
Better to be told when menus are given to you perhaps. Better training I would suggest.

Food was good. Service good. Overall experience, average. It was under new ownership and it wasn’t the sane place as I remember. Things felt a bit neglected. The boiler wasn’t working so no hot water although our room was discounted by 50%. Disappointing.

After seeing mixed reviews recently I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was well and truly impressed! The food was gorgeous, plenty of people which created a ‘buzz’ and our waitress was excellent, making sure to check in regularly and even managed to make us an extra special drink which wasn’t on the menu. After a fantastic meal we were able to walk home too..we will definitely be back!

Our first meal with friends since restrictions lifted on 17th May & we felt very safe & Covid guidelines were adhered to. The food & service was excellent. Waitress was excellent but did not get her name. Thank you for making our first meal in nearly a year outstanding

The food which when we last visited 2 years ago, was superb now seems distinctly average , its so frustrating, a place changes ownership and the once reliable quality dissappears out the window, furniture looked and felt tired , just no point returning there again now as the drive there isn't worth the effort, I felt sad leaving as this happens all too often

Service not great - a little slow and the waiter forgot to order our sides so they came out when we’d nearly finished our meal. The quality of ingredients and the meal overall was really good. We will return once COVID restrictions have lifted.

The food was OK but not outstanding for the price, however the really awful aspect of our dining experience was the disgusting smell from the sewers that kept wafting across from the drains in the garden. I spoke to friends about this afterwards and it appears its not unusual.

A mixture of families eating and groups going for it on the £25 all you can drink in 2 hours. Not for me , went for a family meal but really an odd place. I went a few years ago and really enjoyed it , yes it was outside this time but I wouldn’t go back I’m afraid.

Not easy to create a good dining experience with open doors on a cold day but the Ragged Cot did its best to achieve a pleasant time during the reopening in tricky times. All in all a good lunch.
